Easy Dusk Shimmer Eye Look

This is my all-time favorite way to create an eye look, because it's extremely easy, takes very little practice, and you only need 2 shades!

You can use any shades you like - one darker, and one lighter. In these pictures I used Deep Plum ShadowSense for the darker shade, and Dusk Shimmer ShadowSense for the lighter shade!

Start by placing a small dab of the dark shade (I used Deep Plum) on the outer 1/4 of your lid, and blend it softly until it covers the outer corner of your lid. If you want, you can softly blend some of it into your crease, but feel free to skip that step if you want to keep things extra simple.

And when I say a small dab, I really mean a small dab! ShadowSense is extremely pigmented - you don't need very much! Start very small, and add more if you need to.

Now take a dab of your lighter shade (I used Dusk Shimmer) and blend it over the rest of your lid. You can be a little more generous with this shade, since lighter shades are more forgiving, and you'll place it over a larger surface area.

Be sure to blend the edges of the dark and light shades together too, as that will help the shades fuse together more naturally!

Add a little eyeliner, if you choose, and some mascara! I used Black Waterproof EyeSense Liner Pencil on just the outer corner of my eyes to be extra simple. Love, love, love that it doesn't run or smear, even in summer heat!
